For darker days.

There are always going to be days in work where getting through the day is tough. As long as I am smart and tidy, I can pretty much wear what I like to meet clients, so I decided to buy one item that is always going to make me smile.

Yes, I know I champion Zara way too much, but I really do love their shirts for work! I promise that I will post about other brands in the future, but they have so many nice items in store that I can't walk away from...including this little gem...


I originally spoke about the skirt above in my First Impressions post.  I love the skirt so much that I will probably wear it a lot to meetings and away days and can always change the belt when it's starting to look a little same old-same old. 

The watch is by Nixon, and I always borrow it from my boyfriend when I'm having an accessory crisis day! He bought this one from Harvey Nichols, but I'm pretty sure that you can get them on Net-a-Porter too. 

And finally, the shoes. These cute brogues are from Deena & Ozzy at Urban Outfitters.  They are so comfy to wear and look good on days where heels are a no-go! 

Let me know if you think this shirt is a little loud...I'll save it for the weekends!

  1. Love the watch and the blouse! Thank you for your lovely comments. Yes, I tried the -Wastgota Kloster Kl Svart 31%- Ikea cheese. You know I love my Gouda, so I choose the highest %. ;-) meanwhile I dont know what it means, but it turned out good!!! I havent tried the spinach pancake but if you recommend -next time I will try it!

  10. Love the blouse. I don't think it's too loud you can pair it with green, cream, blue, pink, beige anything really. I would wear a colorful pencill skirt and the blouse over the skirt with a belt if the blouse is long enough. It's a really fun blouse and so many ways to style it. I'm new to blogging as well and I'm trying to revise my reading list and once I do I'll follow back. Thanks for following and have a nice weekend.

  17. Zara never fails with their floral prints (or just any prints in general), I have a floral blouse from Zara and I can't stop wearing it on my gray days. And love the minimalistic watch.

  20. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
    You've got a lovely blog, and I love the shirt, it looks great with all black clothes, I especially like it tucked into the skirt. Could also wear it casually with a pair of denim shorts in the summer? xxx
